Treatment Options for Slipping Dentures in Bethesda, MD
Drs. Prestipino and Sfondouris are leading restorative dentists in Bethesda, MD. They help many patients achieve a more comfortable and functional fit with custom dentures and partials. For patients who struggle with denture slippage, our doctors can provide additional solutions to further meet your needs. We utilize implant dentistry to help patients anchor their dentures into their mouths.
Dental implants involve surgically implanted titanium posts that fuse together with your jawbone once fully healed. These posts provide the stability and support that your dentures need to remain in the same place while in use. Implant-supported dentures and partials provide patients with many benefits including more comfortable chewing and speaking patterns. You no longer have to worry about avoiding excessively chewy or crunchy foods. Even just one dental implant will substantially improve your denture wearing experience and make you feel more confident with your restored smile’s look, feel, and functionality.
Say Goodbye to Denture Adhesives
If you are missing all of your natural teeth, your dentures have nothing to cling to while in your mouth. This means that most denture wearers have to use some kind of adhesive product to help the dentures stick to their soft tissues while in use. With implant-supported dentures, this is no longer the case. Implant-supported dentures also prevent facial bone loss since the implant mimics the support of natural tooth roots. Not only do you get the added benefit of more functional chewing and speaking but you also get to preserve the natural structure of your jawbone to prevent facial sagging.
